Yeah... flip over to the Co-main events thread for a crow-eatin'-Arlovski-bashin' good ole time!

Yup. When Arlovski hit Sylvia with the huge right I thought it was over. I have no idea how recovered from that shot so fast.Wow, I guess we were all kind of wrong, huh.
Then, Arlovski threw that punch from a mile away and got caught.
Of course now everyone says how Fedor will kill him, but of course Fedor was almost knocked out by Fujita...anyone can be knocked out, it's just who lands the best shot first.

Yes fujita rocked Fedor,but in the next millisecond fedor drops him with a left hook and jumps on him to secure a RNC,so almost knocked out no,rocked for a split second yes.Originally Posted by EESCHMan

It was the liver kick that made Fujita topple, the hook just helped him fallOriginally Posted by ripped218
It is always fun to have these discussions but as we all know, in the professional world of fighting anyone can put anyone down with the right punch or kick. With that said, my pick will always be Fedor until someone proves me wrong.

ARlovski has a glass chin, it was evident in his fight with Rizzo and even in his first fight with Datsik. Andrei did walk into the punch like Lawler did with Diaz thus amplifying the effect but the fact remains he has a weak chin. Sylvia's chin is obviously a lot better and thus it is stupid to fight another solid striker when you're chin is much weaker. Arlovski would dominate Tim on the ground and should have taken it there instead of banging with Tim. He had a poor gameplan and it cost him.
Fedor on the other hand knows his opponents' weaknesses and executes a gameplan accordingly. This is why he doesn't lose. Look at the Crocop fight. If you watch Mirko's k-1 fights he doesn't do well when he's pressured, but likes to trade shots. Crocop has a good takedown defense so you can't jsut shoot in without setting it up. The Coleman fight proved this. So Fedor pressed Mirko and kept him backpedaling taking Mirko out of his game. He dominated the fight and Crocop was lost after the first round. Fedor fights intelligently and is why he is so dominate.
Congrats to Tim and the Miletich camp, they recognized Arlovski's weakness and executed a gameplan accordingly.

Well, Arlovski is overrated.
His chin is definitely suspect. He got KTFO by one punch from Datsik and Rizzo. Then Ricco got a ref stop in the mount iirc. The punch that Arlovski took from Sylvia didn't look that hard but he dropped pretty easily.
As for Fedor, the Pride champ's judo credentials and performance in MMA far surpasses anything Arlovski has on the ground.

Are you kidding?? Silvia just got rocked and was in survival mode when he caught Arlovski with that punch... That was more luck than execution of a gameplan. Their fight was way too short to make that kind of claim...Originally Posted by ersatz
I think Arlovski has great tools in his arsenal but his weak chin would get him KO'd pretty quick if he ever fought the likes of CroCop or Fedor.

Of course it was a lucky punch but Tim said if they stood he would eventually catch Andrei and he did. This fight was 3 times longer than the first and perhaps still too short. But Andrei should have tried taking it to the ground. Arvloski is the most well rounded fighter in the UFC's hw div but he should fight more intelligently.Originally Posted by sikdogg

Every fighter thinks that he'll eventually catch his opponent and knock him out... I don't want to take anything away from Silvia cuz i think he's a good fighter and a win is a win, i just think his win wasn't about planning as much as it was Arlovski getting sloppy. Can't wait for the re-match...Originally Posted by ersatz
